One of the greatest aspects of my life over the last few months has been reading Harry Potter with my son. It’s seriously something I think about and look forward to every single day. He has become obsessed with the series and will talk your ear OFF about his favorite moments from the books, characters or how excited he is to watch the movies! We have a strict rule of not watching until we finish the book and are only 3 chapters away from wrapping up Prisoner Of Azkaban. These Jim Kay illustrated editions are perfect for exposing younger generations to J.K. Rowling’s enchanting and enthralling magical universe! Cozying up with my boy and watching his reactions to some of the big moments and twists has been one of the most precious things I’ve ever experienced in all my life, I swear. It’s kinda rad how something as simple as reading to my kid can bring so much joy to both him and I in this really special way. We are both anxiously awaiting Goblet Of Fire which is set to be released in 2019, but damn that feels like a lifetime away!
Which is your favorite Harry Potter of the series? Mine has to be Part 4 because of the story structure being build around the 3 tasks, PLUS the return of Voldemort, but I feel myself liking something unique about each one as I re-read. I really enjoyed the hell out of these when I first read them but reading ‘em again with my son this time definitely makes me enjoy escaping to this world even MORE! 📚⚡️ #nowreading #harrypotter #harrypotterbooks #wizardingworldofharrypotter #jkrowling #jimkay #harrypottercollection #musiclover #musicreviews #musicreviewblog #musicblog #blog #musicsaveslives #vinyl #vinylcollection #film #filmblog #filmbuff #television #tv #90s #thedailycassette

Hereditary is by far one of the most disturbing and unsettling cinematic experiences I’ve ever had. This film does an excellent job inducing fear in an audience. Most horror movies are usually run-of-the-mill in the sense that they carry the same cliches time and time again. The jump scares, high-pitched violins, and quick cuts have become so diluted that they fail to serve their purpose. However, with Hereditary, that is not the case. This film avoids many common cliches and arcs of horror movies, and instead cultivates fear and dread through cinematic methods. The acting, cinematography, and editing are carefully used to create unsettling atmospheres and aesthetics. The original score, which is something I feel is overlooked in this film, also compliments the tone of the film, as well as establish it. The performances from Alex Wolff and Toni Collette stole the show. Their unique characteristics and demeanors brought realistic characters to this narrative that anyone could easily relate to, so that when traumatic things occurred to these characters, it made it all the more disturbing. Hereditary also does an outstanding job of creating a well-structured narrative that never drags or felt rushed. There are a plethora of minute details in the film that seem irrelevant at first, but eventually all come back together for the big reveal at the end of the film, and for that I applaud the writers. Finally, as mentioned by a close friend of mine, Hereditary does an excellent job exploring and appealing to the human condition. Grief and fear of death are driving forces of human nature. It propels us to appreciate what little life we have on Earth as well as puts into perspective our own physical mortality. And Hereditary explores these emotions of grief and mortality so well that it pretty much evoked an essential crisis for me. As many of you know, I don’t give out 5 stars lightly, but because its cinematic value, its ability to cultivate fear flawlessly, and its ethos, I feel Hereditary is the perfect horror film.
Honestly, this is my #1
favorite movie. Idc if some people say this is overrated. I legitimately spend my time watching videos analyzing this film. At first I thought it was just going to be a hollow crime movie, but after viewing it multiple times, I never thought I would fall in love with Tarantino's dialogue, which was beautifully executed through complex characters and nonlinear storytelling.

I wanted to share 10 of my favourite shots from Andrei Tarkovsky’s cinema. Although there are hundreds more shots in his work that could easily have been in this list. Tarkovsky quite simply makes pure cinema, I don’t know any other filmmaker who has mastered the art of cinema in the way that Tarkovsky has. With his masterful spellbinding imagery which is both beautiful,ethereal, spiritual and haunting, Tarkovsky is a cinematic poet. #andreitarkovsky #film #cinema #imagery #art #cinematography #poetry #filmbuff
Such a great film, still not sure whether I agree with Charlie Simms’ decision but that might be the Geek in me not understanding what’s wrong with snitching on douchebags. Al Pacino is fantastic, as always. #scentofawoman #movienerd #filmbuff
THIS IS SPINAL TAP (1984)
Director: Rob Reiner
Cinematography: Peter Smokler
I recently watched Dark, a Netflix show from Germany. The show deals with time travel and possible changes that could occur if you alter the past. It was a decent show, a bit confusing but it reminded me of the Ethan Hawke/Sarah Snook science fiction movie.
I can't say too much since it is filled with twists but Hawke is a bartender where Snook ends up one night and tells a unbelievable life story.
It starts out alittle slow but picks up as the weird sci-fi interwoven plot starts to make sense.
Both actors were great, I looked up Snooks credits and she really hasn't done much which is surprising.

Work continues on this Ghost In The Shell poster. I’ll defend the recent live action film, taken in its own merit - with a likeness to Scarlett Johansson here.
I’ve also added some Manga touches that reflect the original such as oversized chest and eyes, as well as the type.

UPGRADE ▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪ Heard nothing but good things about this movie and decided to check it out a few days back with my dad. Didn't know much about it going in, but i came out pleasantly suprised and have thought about the movie every day since. It starts out as a by the numbers revenge movie, but thanks to its futuristic setting, it quickly developes into something more. Taking inspiration from the worlds of Black Mirror and the tone of John Wick, the film manages to walk familiar ground but in a very stylish, unique, and fun way. Logan Marshall Brown absolutely kills it in this role, and portrays his character flawlessly. The action is executed in a fresh and unique way thanks to the very stylish camera work that locks onto the fighting and moves with it. This, along with the movie's over-the-top gore helps the movie escape from falling into the generic, choppy fight scenes that alot of films have today. The movie does it's best to subvert expectations and cliches at every turn, especially with it's third act, which genuinely suprised me. This movie is well worth your time and in the middle of block-buster season, I'm glad a small, self contained movie like this is doing as well as it is and left as good of an impression as it did.
Happy 34th Birthday to Paul Dano. In my opinion one of the best actors out there today. He can play a variety of roles and nail each and every one of them. Hopefully he lands one someday soon that’ll finally get him an Oscar.
That plane isn't photoshopped in, we got lucky
What did you all think of SPAWN?
Are you excited for the new movie coming out next year?
Give it 2 weeks.... hopefully. we'll talk overall costs tomorrow
I'm usually one to avoid video game to film adaptations mostly because I've yet to see a single one that I could say is was actually good, I haven't even seen the original Tomb Raider films with Angelina Jolie that being said, although this years remake has received mixed reviews I've heard many claim that it's a decent step in the right direction for video game adaptations and for the most part I can totally agree. We have to begin first with Alicia Vikander who was an absolutely perfect choice to play Lara Croft. This was Vikanders break through to action films and knowing that she already has an Oscar under her belt, it's just another check mark on her resume, proving that she has a long and successful career ahead of her. Vikander nailed the action scenes and the chemistry between her and her on screen father played by Dominic West was heartfelt. I also appreciated that she wasn't used as a sex symbol in this film but rather as a respected heroine that continues to grow on us all the way up until the end. However, aside from Vikander the rest of the film is mediocre at best. The action sequences, though a little over the top at times, are executed pretty well but the CGI use is terrible in certain scenes. As for characterization, aside from Lara and her father no one else really had an impact on the film. It's obvious that the films main villain played by Walton Goggins was meant to be menacing but instead he came across as nothing more then a cliche villain who lacked any moral or reasoning for his actions. Lastly, the story itself felt pretty generic and predictable though there's no denying it was entertaining. The film surprisingly does a great job of setting a potential sequel at the end which shows a lot of room for improvement. All in all I'm excited to see where this franchise will go not only for the series but for video game adaptions in general.

Quick Thoughts #21
Tag • Directed by: Jeff Tomsic • Starring: Ed Helms, Jon Hamm, Jake Johnson Hannibal Buress and Jeremy Renner
Reaction: Hilarious and surprisingly heartfelt, Tag perfectly captures the spirit of comradery and brotherhood while also understanding the sense of innocent joy that childhood and nostalgia brings about. The script is flawed, other than the jokes which land almost every time, and there isn't a significant sense of style or direction that could have elevated this to something special. The ensemble is great, especially Buress who has recently been the best part of every film he's in. There is a ton of lazy exposition and one reporter character who basically acts as the audience, asking questions and receiving things like the rules of the game and personal anecdotes in an attempt to flesh out the characters. The romantic rivalry subplot also felt very ham-fisted and adds absolutely nothing to the overall story. This is such a great story and I think Tomsic did a generally good job with it, and Tag officially cements 2018 is the year of good to great comedies
Here is my recommendation for awesome underrated action movies that went unnoticed during their initial release except for The Accountant which was a sleeper hit but deserved more followings. These films won't satisfy everybody but for those with appreciation for fun popcorn B rated films with lower budget than you're used to, this is a great way to pass some time.
